So, I'm the middle child of three. I'm still in the same state as our mom. I'm the first to give her grandkids. She lives 45 min away (we've moved many times), she's on a wait list of affordable housing to move closer for 2 years now. She recently made the decision to not drive anymore claiming she doesn't feel safe driving in hwy with also an expired license plate and no insurance and doesn't want to pay it. I question the doesn't feel safe on hwy. She has a fear issue, anxiety, depression, etc. She has had double hip surgery 6/7 years ago I think, but chooses to not move and sit in recliner 24/7 which in turn makes it worse, she throws on guilt to see grandkids, expects to be served in return (like we owe her), I'm tired of this manipulation. She needs somebody to come and makes sure she walks everyday, I can't.
Her dr. (I was there to hear everything) clearly pointed out that she's dealing with a sedentary lifestyle and needs to move.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I chose not to do anything this year, we're dealing with car issues to top out off, and I don't want to enable her behavior and be part of her decline.
